How to convert from xmodmap to evdev?

The intrepid release notes kindly point out that

| The X keycodes generated with the new evdev input driver in X.Org 1.5
| are not compatible with those generated in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and before.
| If you have configured keybindings for your user with a ~/.Xmodmap
| file, you will need to convert or disable it by hand on upgrade.

but I could not find any documentation about how to convert. Do I need
to rewrite the xmodmap using different keysyms/keycodes? Or has
xmodmap been replaced by something entirely different in evdev?

Any information would be greatly appreciated...
